Most of us have grown up making the wrong choices . . . water in plastic bottles, packaged foods with long lists of unidentifiable ingredients, and cleaning supplies strong enough to take the paint off the wall.
If you care about your health and the health of those you love, you will want to buy this book and then read it cover to cover. Inside this book is well-founded information which can help us avoid many of the toxic chemicals we can't see or taste, which are putting our health at risk for diseases and even death. If you're over 40, you probably have noticed (like I have) that you know many more people who are dying of cancer than when you were younger. There is a reason for that, my friends, and the toxic chemicals in our food and home is a definite contributor to our demise.
Beth Greer has become a well-known expert in this topic, and every page of her book tells us something we didn't already know. Would you have imagined that most of our garlic comes from China, and that it is whitened with bleach and injected with growth inhibitors to prevent sprouting? Don't look the other way . . . buy this book, get smart, and get healthy!
Lynette Fleming, Coauthor of Lunch Buddies: Buddy Up for a Better Diet
Greer, who bills herself as the super natural mom is both a journalist and a holistic health advocate. Her book is divided into four sections that include a) what goes in you b) what goes on you c) what surrounds you and d) supporting information.
The foreword is written by the nationally known environmental lifestyle expert Danny So which is a nice opening to the volume.
If you want to go green and do it without lots of additional stress, this is a great book to read and follow. I personally loved the part about cosmetics and enjoyed following the author's advice as I updated my makeup and got into the pink as I went green at least in that part of my life!
Fun advice like Feng Shui tips and where to buy products is sprinkled thruoghout the book so it's easy to read in sections. Just remember you CAN get started one room at a time. Great gift to give for a wedding shower -- add some of the green products that the author recommends to a natural basket you can give to the bride and groom with pride. So politically correct!
If Ms. Greer had related the same information with footnotes documenting how she knew this, I would gladly give this book 5 stars. As an alternative I would reccommend "Easy Green Living" by Renee Loux. She uses extensive footnotes, and even though I have no intention of looking up every single one, I know that I could.
